Press Conference: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Deny Wedding Rumors


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have denied wedding bells are in the air, saying they want to concentrate on their newborn daughter and two older children.

"There is nothing in the air. The focus is the kids, and we are obviously extremely committed to the children and as parents together," Jolie, 30, told a news conference for local journalists Wednesday at a hotel in the Namibian coastal town of Swakopmund. "So that kind of says it for us, and to have a ceremony on top of it is nothing."

It was the Hollywood couple's first public appearance since Jolie gave birth to Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt on May 27 at a private clinic in Walvis Bay. Delivered by Caesarean section, the baby weighed 7 pounds and was said to be in good health.

Pitt and Jolie had retreated to the southwest African country for government-assisted privacy in the weeks leading up to the birth. They were accompanied by Jolie's children, 16-month-old Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia, and 4-year-old Maddox, adopted from Cambodia.

Both children had their surnames legally changed to Jolie-Pitt after Pitt announced his intention to adopt them as well.

The couple sold rights to images of Shiloh Nouvel through Getty Images photo agency, saying proceeds would be donated to a charity, not yet named.

People magazine paid a reported $4 million for the right to release the pictures in North America, while Hello! magazine obtained British rights.

The embargo on the images was broken when two Web sites posted an apparent image of the front cover of Hello!

People and Hello! launched legal action Wednesday against the Web sites to prevent publication of the Hello! cover before the celebrity magazine was to go on sale Thursday in Britain.

Pitt and Jolie, who were first linked romantically after appearing together in the 2005 movie "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," planned to leave Namibia in the coming days, without specifying a date.

"We are very proud that our daughter was born here, and we leave with fond memories and definitely hungry to return," Pitt, 42, said.

Jolie, relaxed and smiling in a long black dress, said she and Pitt had sought a place where they could spend some special time with Zahara and Maddox before the birth.

"We both had traveled to Africa and loved this part of the world," she said.

Jolie, who won an Oscar for her supporting role in 1999's "Girl, Interrupted," is divorced from Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller.

Pitt and Jennifer Aniston divorced last year.

    Again, I can’t say enough about these two people. They are blessed souls in such a cruel world. Congrats!

    I think it’s great that actors care about children, but there are many children in our own country who are living in poverty, abused, etc. But it’s more chic to care about issues in other countries.

    Perhaps they’ve never heard the old wise adage, “Charity begins at HOME!”

  4. Jennifer Says:

    Give it up people. To Robin who says “blessed souls”..give me a break. They are just
    Hollywood actors ( and not very good ones either). Both totally selfish , if they didn;t want all this attention they wouldn’t get it.

    Ange and Brad are great people who genuinely care about sharing their material and experiential wealth with those who many, living with far more then they need, find it easy to forget about.

    So many people love to have an opinion about their pasts – Every one has some history of pain, loss and sadness in thier lives, wether that be what some people see as dramatic or not – it’s our own experience and no one elses to be offended by – If people feel the need to judge Ange and Brad those people need to look at their own lives and experiences and ask why they care so much!
    Ange and Brad’s journey may be the trigger that brings up some peoples insecurities – but that’s all. They’re not right or wrong for their choices, they’re just living out their lives and they’re doing a great job.

    Leave them alone and let them find some kind of peace – being parents to three kids is hard enough without having to deal with people stalking you with cameras or having people judging your every move.

    I think they make an amazing couple and you can tell there is a depth to Brad that Jen would never nurture or challenge… It’s obviouse Ange and Brad can bring out the most amazing qualities in each other – as well as the worst – and that’s the balance you need in a long term relationship. Their relationship will work because not only can they nurture the amazing qualities in each other – they’ll tough it out when it’s difficultand ultimately help the other when they need to understand the ‘darker’ parts of their personalities.

    Brad and Jen should be gratelful for the things they learned out of being together but their ‘life partnership’ was never meant to last.

    Well done to Ange for getting through the whole pregnancy experience – it’s certainly one of the toughest things I have ever done. (Just remember you’ll be on survival mode for atleast the 1st year and it’s ok if you just can’t be everything you think you should be – try your best obviously, but take care of youself too).

    Brad gets a special mention for providing the sperm (remember though, anything you had to deal with from Ange when she was pregnant would have been far more intensified for her – pregnancy is wonderful but hard!)

    There’s so much more I could write it would go on for days but thats enough – I have a life!

    Anon…thank you for that post…you are so right on…That is why I love this couple. I wish the world would leave them alone and let them be.

  7. Christine Says:

    Blah..Blah…Blah…when are you going to stop worshiping these people….

  8. Miki Says:

    These two will NEVER get married. If they do, it wont last. Their egos are more important to them than anything else, especially Angie the whore.

  9. Lisette Says:

    It is true that we should all be looking in our own back yards and trying to help those kids that are right here. I praise anyone, regardless of Pitt or Jolie, for taking a child that would have nothing otherwise. My best wishes to everyone who has the heart, patience and love to do what they do. Adoption is a wonderful thing. As far as this couple is concerned, they are “Hollywood”. next month it will be someone else that we are all fascinated with. Gives us all a chance to think about and criticize other people instead of getting out there like this couple has and doing something about it regardless of what country or nationality. Good luck and God Bless them as I couldn’t do what they are doing and I respect them for it.

  10. Jessica Says:

    Miki, you sound like a jealous sad person. How are you gonna call someone a whore who you don’t even know? Anyways, she is crazy hot and can have anyone she wants…ROCK THE FUCK ON ANGELINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Becky Says:

    I love how Miki, Christine, Jennifer, and Melissa HATE Angelina and Brad, but yet you are on a site called ALL ANGELINA JOLIE 24/7, and you have the balls to write nasty things. Who are you to be talking about 1) someone you dont know and 2) someone you hate and dont care about?

    And Christina, way to tell people to stop worshiping these people, but yet you are still sitting on you computer, reading up on these celebs. How else would you have known about this blog. THATS AWESOME.

    That just says that you are people who are jealous, as Jessica so nicely put it. GET A LIFE and stop putting your noses in other peoples buisness.

    I personally think that they are a good couple and that they really care about other people.
